Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Chris Gibson for U.S. House of Representatives in New York's 19[SUP]th[/SUP] Congressional District.

"Chris Gibson has a proven record of defending the Second Amendment," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "His strong dedication and voting record have earned him an "A" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF."

While serving in Congress, Chris Gibson cosponsored and voted for H.R. 822, "The National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act," which would ensure that law-abiding Americans with valid concealed handgun permits would be able to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry. Gibson voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas related to the deadly Operation Fast and Furious scandal, and voted for an amendment to prevent the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from circumventing the will of Congress by centralizing records of thousands of Americans' long gun purchases.

Gibson voted for H.R. 4089, "The Sportsmen's Heritage Act," which would promote America's hunting heritage and positively impact sportsmen throughout the country. He also cosponsored H.R. 420, "The Veterans' Heritage Firearms Act," to provide an amnesty period during which veterans and their family members could register firearms acquired overseas between 1934 and 1968 without fear of prosecution.

In contrast, Gibson's opponent, Julian Schriebman, is rated "?" by the NRA-PVF for refusing to return the NRA federal candidate questionnaire. That refusal is viewed as a sign of indifference or outright hostility to the rights of gun owners and sportsmen.
"The choice for gun owners in this election is clear. Chris Gibson will respect our right to self-defense and honor our rich hunting heritage. Julian Schriebman will not," concluded Cox. "We urge all NRA members and gun owners in New York's 19[SUP]th[/SUP] District to vote Chris Gibson for U.S. House of Representatives on November 6."

Chris W. Cox is NRA's chief lobbyist. He also serves as chairman of NRA-PVF. The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is responsible for political candidate ratings and endorsements. These are based on candidate voting records, public statements and responses to NRA-PVF questionnaires.
